/standing ovationHow I love this article. I am in complete agreement. Can't wait to read the rest of this series.

I was reading the article and all along I was thinking we need Anduin Lothar until I read his part "We need a new Lion of Stormwind. We haven't had one since Warcraft II, when Anduin Lothar bit the dust. " Oh how I wish we could have a king worthy of his people. I do not want a fighting leader, what I want is a leader that is smart and brave. Smart enough to realize when action needs to be taken and brave enough to take action. A king does not need to fight the battles by himself, he only needs to have the heart of the people and the people will fight the fights for him. What they should do is kill this king (I know treason!) and bring the son up to power (he is a priest but he seems to be intelligent and brave), he can be advise by Jaina and/or the wolfman or just make him grow up until adulthood. Also they (Blizzard) should come up with a quest line that allows us to return Anduin Lothar's sword. I have it and I will be willing to give it up if they bring me a leader that I can be proud off or make me king! I promise you that you will have Troll for Breakfast, BELF for lunch and a very Garosh dinner and after that we go to MOP... do not mess with the cows because they are cool (and are people too) and the undead are just nasty!

My guild leader says that there was originally an alliance storyline/movie around getting to the Twilight Highlands that was closer to the Horde version which made Varian MUCH more badass, deep, developed his character, etc. I don't know how he knows this - maybe it was a big story and I just missed it. But it sounds cool. I now have raiding characters in both factions, and finally got to see the horde version - WHOA. Big, big difference. I love me some Flintlocke, but alliance truly did get robbed, there. Horde version here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTqKi1VDQlEI can't find this supposed cool alliance version anywhere.

@MarkIt's the second half of the video embedding in this blog post.http://childrenofwrath.blogspot.com/2011/12/when-your-reach-exceeds-your-grasp.htmlThe first half is Thrall's dialogue that made it in game in the goblin zone, the second half is the voice acting for the Alliance Twilight Highlands intro, in which Varian uncovers Archbishop Benedictus as a traitor with the help of the players, and sends the Alliance to the Twilight Highlands with the express orders not to engage the Horde.It was the lynchpin that held together the Alliance questing experience, and Blizzard cast it aside in favor of a wild ride with Fargo.

Completely agreed with both the sentiment of the original post as well as the commenters here, I am standing and applauding with you."Go, Varian. Go and do."Quoted for truth.

I so loved this article. I applaud and salute you....once I figure out how you do both of those at the same time without slapping yourself in the face.blizz has so neglected the alliance leaders for so long.Seriously though this hits on so many important things.And I have to also say that this is nice to see on the Insider who has it's own reputation for horde exclusivity and bias. Good on you insider.Very much looking forward to the rest of these.
